From NASCAR to Indy-style to off-road, the ultimate racing bathroom lets die-hard fans keep up with the action and celebrate their favorite sport.

Racing fans don't like to leave the action for a minute, even for bathroom breaks. Take some advice from the pros: Don't splurge on permanent fixtures for a custom racing theme. You may be loyal to your favorite drivers until your dying day, but you may need to move someday, and you won't be able to take that custom tile mosaic of the Daytona track with you. Instead, create a bathroom fit for the victory circle, and then add your favorite racing accessories.

Don't Miss a Minute

Catching the action is easy with a high-definition TV that lets you keep up with the leaders and get a great view of who's trading paint. If the ultimate racing bathroom is connected to a rec room or den — perfect for those race-day parties — think about tying the TV into the main set in the next room to create a sports suite. For the off-season, or those days when there's not a race on, load up DVDs of favorite racing movies like Talladega Nights or Days of Thunder, or just recapture bygone days with a few old Speed Racer episodes.

Scrub Down in Style

When picking fixtures for the ultimate racing bathroom, think skybox, not infield.

Kick back in an oversized soaking tub while you watch the race, or scrub down in a spa-style shower with computer controls that remember the temperature, intensity and spray patterns for your favorite shower setups. A water-friendly sound system means you won't miss any of the action from the TV or your MP3 music library, and an all-in-one remote lets you be your own pit boss and control everything from a single touchpad.

Be True to Your Team

Die-hard fans are loyal to their favorite drivers, teams and car styles. Dress up walls with racing-themed wallpaper, borders or wall appliqués; or, make a real statement with a giant vinyl cutout of your favorite driver or car. It's also easy to find racing-themed clocks, mirrors, towels, cups, wastebaskets, picture frames and other accessories (keep an eye out for the official NASCAR electric toothbrush).

If you don't want to commit to just one driver or team, or if fellow fans in the household have different favorites, you may want a more generic ultimate racing bathroom. It only takes a few minutes on the Internet to find a world of checkered-flag accessories, from pennants and flags to toilet seat covers, toothbrushes and razors. Of course, no ultimate racing bathroom is complete without a roll of classic checkered-flag toilet paper.
